Hamburg Triennial
29 May 2018

Humanity is at a breaking point where seismic change seems inevitable. In the face of heightened global challenges – from climate change to the refugee crisis and political turmoil to cyberattacks and the threat of terrorism – the medium of photography is able to place a visual focus on such issues. The exhibition [ENTER] presents 15 artists whose work deals intensively with the social, political and ecological narratives of our world. Her works vigorously question social structures and abuse of power.

We hope to enter into a progressive intercultural dialogue through the presentation of these works during the 7th Triennial of Photography Hamburg, as we see the festival as a focal point for a broad discussion and as a place where current behaviors are discussed and challenged can. “- Emma Bowkett, curator.

[ENTER] serves as an introductory exhibition to the 7th Triennial of Photography Hamburg 2018 and is part of the Container Festival Center on the square of the Deichtorhallen.
